Implementations of this listener interface should be attached to a DocPrintJob to monitor the status of the printer job. These callback methods may be invoked on the thread processing the print job, or a service created notification thread.
In either case the client should not perform lengthy processing in these callbacks. Also check answers to my question about printers, the Printer Job API is what are you looking for, but checking this out will also help:.

There is a get method in HashMap: for String keys : objectSet. I'd be careful when using this approach for time-sensitive applications because internally get method is linearly searching O n for the corresponding value. The get method internally makes a call to getNode hash keykey which uses hashing. It does a linear search only when there is a hash collision. The Overflow Blog.

How can I do that? This content has been marked as final. Show 11 replies. Are you talking about duplex printing or do want to print two logical pages upon one side of the paper?
The first is really a printer feature and I don't think you can do much about it, for the second, well, have your printables scale down and translate the printed content accordingly. Thanks for your answer, il will check right now the URLs you indicated.
I want to be abble to print 2 pages on the front and back of a sheet paper So you want duplex printing. Ok, in theory i found my solution, but it is not working. I want to print 1 page in each side of a sheet. Here is the code I wrote to test it. The document is printed but with one page in each sheet instead of to be printed of both sides.
How can I solve the problem? Thanks import java. FileInputStream; import javax. Doc; import javax. DocFlavor; import javax. DocPrintJob; import javax. PrintService; import javax. PrintServiceLookup; import javax. SimpleDoc; import javax.

The PDF classes write to an OutputStream in pdf format instead of a typical Graphics object, but the method calls are the same as they would be in any Applet or Application drawing to a canvas.
This project will allow access to all of the components in a PDF document. More PDF manipulation features will be added as the project matures. This ships with a utility to take a PDF document and output a text file. It is possible to simply hand off a swing TableModel to JFreeReport and get a paginated pdf as a result.

It does this by calling Printable. In using the Printable interface the printing commits to image the contents of a page whenever requested by the printing system.
The parameters to Printable. For correct printing behaviour, the following points should be observed: The printing system may request a page index more than once. On each occasion equal PageFormat parameters will be supplied. The printing system will call Printable. If multiple collated copies of a document are requested, and the printer cannot natively support this, then the document may be imaged multiple times. Printing will start each copy from the lowest print stream page index page.
With the exception of re-imaging an entire document for multiple collated copies, the increasing page index order means that when page N is requested if a client needs to calculate page break position, it may safely discard any state related to pages When called by the printing system the Printable must inspect and honour the supplied PageFormat parameter as well as the page index. The format of the page to be drawn is specified by the supplied PageFormat. The size, orientation and imageable area of the page is therefore already determined and rendering must be within this imageable area.
This is key to correct printing behaviour, and it has the implication that the client has the responsibility of tracking what content belongs on the specified page.
When the Printable is obtained from a client-supplied Pageable then the client may provide different PageFormats for each page index. Calculations of page breaks must account for this. A PrinterJob calls the Printable interface to request that a page be rendered into the context specified by graphics.
The format of the page to be drawn is specified by pageFormat. The zero based index of the requested page is specified by pageIndex. The Graphics class or subclass implements the PrinterGraphics interface to provide additional information.
If the Printable object aborts the print job then it throws a PrinterException.Manage your account and access personalized content. Sign up for an Oracle Account.

The applets and applications they use may run in concert with a browser or directly on top of an operating system itself.
In all cases, users expect to be able to print from their desktop to any printers on their network. The Java environment must meet this need by providing a rich set of printing interfaces and functionality, including:. The original JDK 1. The release of the 1. JDK 1. Note that this does not necessarily require that the printer be connected physically to the client machine, but rather that the Java client uses facilities provided by the platform operating system to use a printer.
Also note that some Java platforms may have no printer accessible, directly or indirectly. To print, a client initiates a print job by obtaining a new instance of PrintJob.
The PrintJob class will create for you an instance of a concrete subclass of Graphics, which implements all the usual rendering calls for text, graphics, and images.
This subclass differs from the normal Graphics subclasses in that rendering is done not on the screen, but on a printer. In practice, the subclass either builds a document file, such as PostScript, and ships it to a printer, or it passes the responsibility on to the operating system, e.
You indicate the end of each page by calling dispose on the Graphics subclass, and obtain a new graphics instance from PrintJob for the next page. Java Printing SDK 1. Reference: SDK 1. The SDK 1. The Java printing system uses a callback model in which the printing system controls when pages are printed; the application provides information about the document to be printed, and the printing system asks the application to render each page as it needs them.
While untraditional, the callback model fits better with the existing AWT component painting model. The printing system might request that a particular page be rendered more than once or request that pages be rendered out of order. The application must be able to generate the proper page image, no matter which page the printing system requests. In this respect, the printing system is similar to the window toolkit, which can request components to repaint at any time, in any order.
The callback printing model is also more flexible than traditional application-driven printing models and supports printing on a wider range of systems and printers. For example, if a printer stacks output pages in reverse order, the printing system can ask the application to generate pages in reverse order so that the final stack is in proper reading order.
Kestrel 1. For the SDK, version 1. The JobAttributes class controls the properties of a print job, such as destination and number of copies. The PageAttributes class controls the attributes of a printed page, such as paper size, orientation, and print quality. This method returns a PrintJob object, which encapsulates the information associated with a printing request.
The JobAttributes and PageAttributes classes provide an application with the ability to store particular attributes as instances of these classes, which can be applied to different printing jobs. With the JobAttributes class, you can specify a cross-platform dialog, which was not available in previous versions of the SDK.
Reference: Unified Printing Model. The Unified Printing Model also builds on previously-released printing features, such as the ability to specify a cross-platform dialog.

Using Java, I need to print on network printer, which is not installed locally. I only know the printer name. All tutorials I've seen started with something like:. The problem is there can be no printers installed, so the services will be empty in that case. I need to set the printer name directly, not just enumerate through visible printers.
You must register the printer path through Windows "Devices and Printers" as a printer for that user for it to be visible. Then you must run lookupPrintServices to see the list of printers available and retrieve the proper PrintService by the exact name String listed.
In my case there was an authentication error, I could not find shared printer because i searched them with LocalUser account, using another account or changing printer grants I could find it. Learn more. How to use Java to print on a network printer?

For example, if in Windows, you need to make sure the Printer you want is registered as whichever active directory user the app is running as local user, registered service, etc.
This is a one-time registration. I dont need to use lookupPrintServices.
Problem is, that lookupPrintServices cannot see any of them and I cannot register or install it.
